Two years ago today, we all lost someone very special, someone few of us realised we had such deep feelings for. One of the foundations of our love for Star Wars, she was a one-of-a-kind character who can never be replaced. Carrie Fisher may be gone, and while our fandom have spent the last 24 months trying to come to terms and rationalise that loss, imagine the pain her daughter Billie has had to endure, losing not only her Mother but also her Grandmother, Debbie Reynolds just a few hours later.
To mark the second anniversary of her passing, Billie has posted this video. Watch, and remember the many, many good times Carrie gave us.

🎏🅾️®️ ♏️🅾️♏️🅱️🌱It has been two years since my Momby’s death and I still don’t know what the “right” thing to do on a death anniversary is (I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones). So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together – sing. This is the piano her father gave her and this was one of her favorite songs. And as the song says, we must “keep on moving”. I’ve found that what keeps me moving is doing things that make me happy, working hard on the things that I’m passionate about and surrounding myself with people I love and making them smile. I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to “keep on moving”. As my Momby once said, “take your broken heart and turn it into art” – whatever that art may be for you. ❤️
